With Alexandre Lacazette finally on board, the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are once again optimistic about their chances of a genuine title challenge.
Indeed, while Alexis Sanchez could still leave the club this summer, the fact the Gooners propping up our bar are finally able to celebrate a marquee marksman has excited them ahead of the upcoming campaign.
The talented 17-year-old attacker is thought to have stalled on a £30k-p/w offer from the Sky Blues, with Arsenal thought to be interested. Sancho himself is understood to see Arsene Wenger as a perfect mentor and is reportedly keen to join the north London giants.
City have left him out of their American tour and the player is expected to walk away from the club in 12 months on a free.
Commanding a regular starting berth at either City or Arsenal will be difficult for a 17-year-old, though perhaps Sancho could prove to be a replacement for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, should he depart.
Having lost so many players to the Etihad giants in recent years, prizing Sancho away from Manchester would be a much-needed win for the Gunners. While he may not be Sanchez, perhaps developing him into a first-team star could be a transfer masterstroke in north London.
